Thirst Review

| |

If you're familiar with Oldboy and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, you might have a idea of what Chan-wook Park's work is like. His movies tend to be dark, elegant, and tragically absurd thrown in with a heavy dose of dark comedy. Thirst is certainly no exception to this trend, filled with stunning cinematography, with a contemporary Shakespearean tone throughout.

But while Park's style is apparent in a artful sense, my biggest gripe about the film is the poor attention to detail with the special effects, which tends to distract rather than contribute to the story. The complete lack of a good soundtrack also creates a sense of emptiness, though perhaps that's what Park was ultimately striving for. I, on the other hand, found it to be like the end of a hot-dog - it's missing the sauce and relish I had in the middle. 7.3/10.
